"the chicago tribune" tells us american officials expect the united states would do the heavy lifting in a campaign that may includ
. violence rips law the middle east and the arab world. and now the u.s. is handed over control of the no-fly zone to nato but the u.s. military is still deeply involved. so what is going on? a live report moments away. and a muslim teacher asks for three weeks off to go on a pilgrimage and the school says "no way," she did not work there long enough and the department of justice is suing the school. what is up with that? >> states want to tax big corporations to fix their deficit instead of changing policy so now one big company, caterpillar, employs thousands of people, is ready to flee illinois. could this happen in your state? we continue right now with "fox and friends" this morning. >> welcome, everyone. you are watching "fox and friends" today. >> welcome to "fox and friends" on saturday morning. thank you for waking up with us. that is dave briggs and heather is here and i am clayton. >> lots going on today. >>dave: we start with new developments in libya where rebels have retaken the key town of ajdabiya after a fierce battle with muammar qaddafi forces and rick is live inside th
terrorist attacks on the united states all done by people other than afghans. outraged at continuing u.s. military occupation of predominantly muslim countries. that's not to justify what they do, but it is to clarify the condition that we have in afghanistan. for how long are we going to continue to dedicate hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of lives before we realize we can't win afghanistan militarily? at the end of the year, the administration and u.s. military leaders were touting peace talks to end the war with high level taliban leaders. these leaders turned out to be fake. a november, 2010 article in "the new york times" detailed joint u.s. an afghan negotiations with a man the u.s. claim was one of the most senior commanders in the taliban. according to "the new york times" the episode underscores the uncertain and even bizarre nature of the atmosphere in which afghan and american leaders search for ways to bring the war to an end. leaders of the taliban are believed to be hiding in pakistan, possibly with the assistance of the pakistani government, which receives bi
for -- working for the u.s. government essentially, then the private side, those workers, it was incumbent upon them, what they asked for, they didn't want to ask for so much they were going to break the company they worked for because they'd be out of luck and out of a job, but the public side doesn't have that same kind of relationship. >> no. the relationship between the public sector worker union is with a politician on the other side of the negotiating fence. in the private sector, it's a private sector union person negotiating with a corporate boss for wages and benefits and pensions, and the two are very different. the corporation must rely on profits, the politician relies on the taxpayer and tax revenue. a very different kettle of fish, with very different outcomes as we can see today. martha: that's a tricky marriage, so to speak, as we watch this all unfold. stuart varney from the fox business network and varney & co. bill: back to this weather, flooding and tornadoes leaving a path of destruction in the midwest, we watched this live during our program yesterday. this is flooding in

on the ground were the clearest indication that intensive air strikes carried out by the u.s., french and naval assets over the past week have softened up the libyan military considerably. meanwhile, the front page of " the new york times" - below the fold in the new york times, there's a story on the event recovered live on c-span yesterday. this is prompting us to ask republicans to define what will define the gop primary. with that, republicans only -- 202 the area code. our first call is from ardmore, oklahoma. caller: good morning. i believe the people of united states, their first concern is the economy. another thing we have to be concerned about is full disclosure. in this administration under obama, there has never been such hit in things. he spends money like going to brazil and giving out this money. they owe us tons of money. under the clinton years clinton lent them $100 billion. it goes on and on and on. when did congress lose the power of the purse? the other thing which is the greatest thing in our nation is we have to come back to god and of this nation repents if my people cal

of 2011. last month's "u.s.a."/gallup poll, 72% of americans favor congressional action this year to bring our troops home from afghanistan. this week, the rasmussen report finds that 52% of voters want our troops home from afghanistan this year. and to quote this poll, a majority of voters for the first time support an immediate withdrawal of all u.s. troops from afghanistan or the creation of a timetable to bring them all home within a year. 14 months ago i asked a retired military general to advise me on afghanistan. i have asked him for his thoughts, and i will read some of them to you. back in november i emailed this general and i said, what do you think about the possibilities of being in afghanistan for four more years? and, mr. speaker, i am going to read his quote. i do not believe that 40 more years would guarantee victory, whatever that is. the war is costing money and lives all in short supply. mr. speaker, there's a retired lieutenant colonel in jacksonville, north carolina, which is in my district. he served in the united states marine corps for 31 years. his name is dennis a

. however, the u.s. department of education spared virginia tech from losing some or all of its $98 million in federal student aid. one were the students shot says it is not enough. >> there is no amount of money that can compensate if losing # -- # 2 students and faculty. it is the maximum allowed under current law. that was the most they could do. other schools should understand and learn from the mistake that were made to improve this process and improve notifying students on a timely manner of very critical information. >> university officials have always maintained their innocence and say they will appeal the fine. >>> the frederick county teenager accused of bringing a loaded gun to school. the teen goes to tuscarora high school in frederick. investigators say the boy was showing off a 22 caliber revolunteerer to friends. students told the school resource deputy. the teen claims he needed it for protection after a fight on monday. >>> looking at this morning's other top stories, president obama will lay out a plan for energy security today. he will speak at georgetown university frust

transition, which begins now, and also, u.s. policy moving forward, what is our mission? a lot of questions, will we be giving guns to the rebels? nato now taking over full command, not only enforcing the no-fly zone, also, as of yesterday, saying they will protect civilians in libya as well. another big concern coming up that president is sure to address or be asked about later, the price tag for all of this. some here on capital hill said it already proaching a billion dollars. >>> two people are dead, another seven injuries after a sail boat capsized off san diego. it happened near harbor island off the coast. crews say the boat flipped and sent everyone in the water. two men in their 50s declared dead. children among the injured. the weather was calm and no report of strong winds before the accident. >>> 24 year-old rebecca corium was last seen making a phone call to a friend. she never showed up to work that day. disney said it searched the ship several times and corporating with investigators. the navy, the officials from the bahamas are all involved in the case. >>> how about a rest
the eastern half of the country. increasingly the u.s. and nato seem more comfortable doing business with this man, mustafa al jaleel, now tasked with forming a government. he said he needs one favor from the west -- a no-fly zone.

request for the u.s. gs is one of those where i wish we could have someone from the white house come up and place a hand on the bible and raise his or her right hand and explain themselves because this is a budget that has four things by cutting $89 million and 230fde's from core science programs this budget runs counter to the president's commitment to restore science to its rightful place. second by proposing a washington monument-type cuts to programs like endocrine stream gauges, you see how i said that that the american people care about the budget shows that this administration is willing to play games with this congress by testing our resolve during these serious fiscal times third by inheriting the full funding responsibilities for lancet 9 and 10 from nasa without any of nasa's $19 billion budget and by offsetting the $48 million increase for lancet from other core science programs this budget is assigned of the untenable situation we're likely to be in two years from now when the administration sends up a budget request for lancet that is nearly 10 times the increased proposed
, mr. speaker, and my colleagues, that's not what american, good old u.s.a. medicine is all about. it's time, quality time spent with that doctor and maybe no prescriptions. and i yield back. ms. hayworth: it is precisely and thank you precisely the point that i'm agreeing on with you and we have all been driven to philosophically, we need to have solutions that empower our doctors, our patients and our providers to do all of them, to have the best and to do the best and consumer-based solutions are possible. our doctor's caucus is working hard on providing those ideas, real liability reform, which has to be part of this. we cannot possibly continue as we have been. that was a glarring omission from the a.c.a. but in addition, we need to recognize and appreciate and act upon the knowledge that our medical care can cost less. we do need to pay teaning to costs, but we need to pay attention to our doctors, providers, to use their best judgment, not empower something like the independent payment advisory board to make those decisions for us. that is a very dangerous thing and something t
